This is the first book that I have ever read didn’t make them horrible monsters. I could almost see this as true because she surrounds this book with realism along with the fantasy. I just fell in love with this book and the characters.
My favorite character is probably Mat. I just loved him as the caring older brother. Then there is Finn and his strong beliefs and his warrior skills. Then you had Wendy who was a complete outsider. I love how strong a character she is. She has this very tragic parentage but she is still very grateful for the family and friends she does have. I found her to be a very believable character.
I love Disney fairy tales and this has a similar feel to it. You get the whole stolen princess who comes home type feel but then you have this huge twist. First the home-coming might not be so happily ever after, the wicked stepmother may not have been so crazy and the prince might not be a prince at all. This is just so very good and I think it would appeal to a wide range of readers. I think any one looking for uniquely written story will a lot of fairy tale-ish type eliminates will love this book.
